Hello Goraek,

There is no risk as far as your new DNS provider has better service and no downtime. To migrate DNS service, you will first need to create DNS zone for your domain with all necessary DNS records (A, MX, TXT etc.) which are present on your existing DNS server. Once you create all necessary DNS records on the new DNS servers, you can switch your nameservers to point your domain to new provider's DNS server.
